Tamar A. Weinrib joined Pomerantz in early 2008 and became Of Counsel to the Firm in 2014. Ms. Weinrib focuses on securities fraud litigation. She was honored by Super Lawyers® as a New York Metro Rising Star in 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.
Ms. Weinrib, with Co-Managing Partner Jeremy Lieberman, is Lead Counsel in Strougo v. Barclays PLC, a high-profile securities class action alleging that Barclays PLC misled institutional investor clients about the extent of the banking giant’s use of so-called “dark pool” trading systems. This case turns on the duty of integrity owed by Barclays to its clients. In November 2016, she and Mr. Lieberman achieved precedent-setting victories for investors, when the Second Circuit Court of Appeals held that direct evidence of price impact is not always necessary to demonstrate market efficiency to invoke the presumption of reliance, and that defendants seeking to rebut the presumption of reliance must do so by a preponderance of the evidence rather than merely meeting a burden of production.
Ms. Weinrib was the attorney responsible for the litigation of In re Delcath Systems, Inc. Securities Litigation, in which Pomerantz recently achieved a settlement of $8,500,000 for the Class. She successfully argued before the Second Circuit in In re China North East Petroleum Securities Litigation to reverse the district court’s dismissal of the defendants on scienter grounds. In addition to her involvement in several other securities matters pending nationwide, Ms. Weinrib is the Pomerantz attorney responsible for the litigation of KB Partners I, L.P. v. Pain Therapeutics, Inc., et al., a securities fraud case for which Judge Sparks of the Western District of Texas recently granted final approval for a settlement of up to $8,5000,000 for class members.
Before coming to Pomerantz, Ms. Weinrib had over three years of experience as a litigation associate in the New York office of Clifford Chance US LLP, where she focused on complex commercial litigation. Ms. Weinrib has successfully tried pro bono cases, including two criminal appeals and a housing dispute filed with the Human Rights Commission.
Ms. Weinrib graduated from Fordham University School of Law in 2004 and, while there, won awards for successfully competing in and coaching Moot Court competitions.
Ms. Weinrib is admitted to practice in New York, the United States District Courts for the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York, and the United States Court of Appeals for the Second, Third, Fourth, and Ninth Circuits.
